Thomas Linacre Circle

Linacre has created a legacy recognition circle to acknowledge and thank all those who have remembered the College in their will and let Linacre know of their intention.  The Thomas Linacre Circle is a group of those supporters whose long-term commitment is much appreciated.

Every year there is an opportunity for Thomas Linacre Circle members to meet in College, either for a lunch (donors of £5,000 +), or for another event, usually an Afternoon Tea. Additionally, during the biennial Oxford University reunion weekends in New York, the Principal hosts Thomas Linacre Circle members to an English Afternoon Tea in a central Manhattan hotel.

In the Nadel Room, we are proud to display a Legacy Book, which records all legacy gifts made to Linacre, with short biographies of the donors, and with College’s warm thanks.
